Saturday Walk - 1066 Country: Battle Circular

Length: 20.3 km (12.7 mi)
Ascent/Descent:  450 m; Net Walking Time: ca. 5 hours
Toughness:  6 out of 10

Take the 09.15 Hastings train from Charing Cross, (09.18 W’loo East, 09.24 London Bridge, then Orpington, Sevenoaks, Tonbridge etc.), arriving Battle at 10.42
Return trains: 16.07, 16.44, 17.07, 17.37, 18.07, 18.37, then xx.07 hours (90 mins journey time).  

Long journey on – possibly – the slowest railway line in the south east to a walk through 1066-Country, centred on the charming town of Battle. Woods, Valleys, far views, fairly undulating, but well worth it.

Lunch: The White Hart in Catsfield (4.5 km/2.8 mi), The White Hart (food to 14.30) and the Netherfield Arms (food to14.00), both in Netherfield (13.5 km/8.4 mi).
For tea there’s lots of choice in Battle, first and foremost The Pilgrim’s Rest, but also plenty of cafés.
